After my i860 passed away a couple months back, I struggled to find a replacement. I settled on the PRO-100.
Picked one up a couple weeks ago and finally installed it today.
With regards to the drivers:
I ran the Mini Master Setup as downloaded from Canon just yesterday. I also installed the XPS driver for my Windows 7 systems. Should I also install the version 1.02 driver, or was that already installed by the 1.1 version of the Mini Master Setup program?
Windows XP 32 bit cannot use the 16-bit XPS printer drivers?
Is it common for the printers to have generic Control Panel icons? I've seen the proper icon appear in other setups, but most of mine have used generic icons, instead.
With regards to firmware:
I have the 1.100 updater, but do I need it?
With regards to the included software:
Where should I have installed the ICC profiles?
What will I need to install should I wish to print onto CD/DVD media? There are two programs that include the feature; I assume I need only one?
I'm a long time Corel user. Are there plugins for the Corel Creative Suite?
With regards to paper:
Locally, I'll only be able to find Staples branded 13 x 19 paper, and none of the Canon Luster papers. What's a good online source for paper?
Thanks to anyone with the time to offer a little guidance!

The installer should have installed the correct driver for which ever OS you are running.
If you don't have the latest firmware version, I would get it. I guess I need to check mine and see f I do too!
You don't need anything extra for DVD's. The printer knows when you put the tray in and the Canon Suite will do the rest.
If I understood most (maybe not) of your questions!
I always recommend anyone use genuine Canon products. It just makes it work better with less frustrations. Canon knows what works best with their printers. And real Canon branded paper can be bought directly from the Canon Store and it is on sale sometimes. You can get it from Adorama or B&H Photo, too. Plus there is a store called Red River that has some great "art" papers and one of a very few non-Canon places I get paper from. They have extended profiles for their paper and the Pro-100.
But never, never buy third party inks. USE ONLY CANON branded ink.
Sorry but I am not a Corel Creative Suite user so I have no answer. I use Photoshop CS6 and Light Room 5 and the printer works seamlessly with these Adobe products. I would encourage you to check out Light Room 5 if you are having problems with the Corel Creative Suite.
